My Approach to Helping

Our everyday lives are significantly more stressful in today's world! We are so bombarded by stress that we often forget that there's another way to live. This is where I come in. I work with individuals who are experiencing stress, anxiety, depression, trauma, relationship difficulties, and much more. My approach involves creating new coping strategies to combat any issues that are being experienced. Alongside this, I work to help uncover the roots of the difficulties you're experiencing so that we can create more lasting, long-term change.

More Info About My Practice

I offer home visits upon request in order to ensure the therapeutic process is flexible to your needs.

I work to create a safe space where you can feel comfortable and open to discuss your experiences. With your wellness in mind, I create individualized treatment plans that are guided entirely by you! I believe that every person has unique needs and goals, and this is reflected in my approach. I individually tailor my therapeutic methods to make sure that they are the right fit for you. I promote change, healing, and transformation through these diverse methods.

How Psychotherapy Can Help

Many people may be on the fence about psychotherapy. Stigma about this still persists, and some may believe that going for therapy represents something very serious. People can experience isolation, anxiety, stress, for a variety of reasons. Everyone needs someone to talk to when things get difficult, and psychotherapy can be a valuable resource in difficult times! It can also mean having a person in your life with no other goal than your overall wellbeing! Psychotherapy can give you a space to vent your frustrations, to be heard and understood, and to explore things further. Through therapy, you can deepen your understanding of yourself, which enables more long-term changes to patterns of thinking & behavior that often fuel things like anxiety and depression. Psychotherapy can also assist in creating new coping strategies that are effective in lessening day-to-day distress.

The Duration and Frequency of Therapy

The "Gold Standard" for psychotherapy is to aim for 1-hour sessions once a week. This enables us to create a lot of positive momentum and ensures that issues or patterns do not get lost along the way. However, I am keenly aware that - for many - therapy represents an important but difficult financial commitment. If weekly sessions are not feasible (due to concerns such as finances or time/work schedules), I will work with you to develop alternate ways to ensure we have positive momentum, such as through the use of homework/wellness activities, telephone, and email check-ins.
